Xrays

Woombye Vet Animal XraysWhen would my animal need an Xray?

Sometimes ill or injured animals need testing that goes beyond a routine veterinary examination. This includes more sophisticated diagnostic methods that allow the cause of a health care problem to be identified. Woombye Veterinary Surgery can help with this by carrying out advanced diagnostic testing including digital radiology. These are carried out in our surgery. For your convenience radiographs are kept on file at the surgery.

Microchipping

Why do I need to microchip my animal

If your cat or dog is lost, microchipping is the quickest way to ensure that you and your pet are reunited.

What is microchipping

A microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification. The chip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet's neck. Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner. The microchip number is recorded on a microchip database registry with details about the animal and owner. Pet owners need to ensure their details are up-to-date. Should your pet stray or become lost, vets, animal shelters and local councils can scan your pet for a microchip and contact you directly.

Who can microchip my animal

Only authorised microchip implanters are permitted to microchip pets. Please call Woombye Veterinary Surgery for an appointment.

Is microchipping my pet cat or dog compulsory?

In Queensland, microchipping is mandatory for cats and dogs.

When should microchipping be done?

Ideally your pet cat or dog should be microchipped prior to you purchasing or adopting your pet, or alternatively, at your pets first vaccination.

Pet Health

Woombye Pet Health ChecksFlea treatment

You will need to treat both your pet and your home, as fleas can survive without a host for many months. Woombye Vet can advise on the best products for your individual concerns. Clean bedding regularly and vacuum furniture and floors to help destroy fleas. Throw away the bag from your vacuum cleaner after each use. Only give your pet flea treatment that has been recommended for it, ideally as prescribed by a professional veterinary staff. Products suitable for one species may not be suitable for another e.g. some dog flea treatments contain permethrin, an insecticide that is safe for dogs but highly toxic to cats.
